    How to Install Booster Packs
    To install a Scrapbook MAX! Booster Pack (*.SMB) file, simply click on the filename (as seen in the "Attached Files" box). Your web browser will ask you if you'd like to Open it or Save it. Choose Open. That's it! Your new content is now installed!

    Note: You must be using Scrapbook MAX! v1.0.1.0 or later. You can check what version you have by choosing Help > About. As well, you can update your software to the latest version at any time by choosing Help > Check for Update.

    How to Create Booster Packs
    If you'd like to create embellishments to share on the forums, why not package them into a .smb file, and make your embellishments easy for everyone to enjoy?

    There are two ways to create .smb files.

    The Easy Way
    Use the Scrapbook MAX! Booster Pack Builder.
    1. Create your embellishment images using whatever paint program you like
    2. Download the Scrapbook MAX! Booster Pack Builder (attached below). The Booster Pack Builder is a self-contained .exe file. Just download it and run it – there’s nothing for you to install!
    3. Download the How To Create A Booster Pack PDF guide (attached below) – it is a step-by-step guide.
    4. Create your booster packs!
    That’s it! Using the Scrapbook MAX! Booster Pack Builder, you can quickly package up your created kits into the Scrapbook MAX! Booster Pack file format.

    The Advanced Way
    In most cases, using the Booster Pack builder is the ideal way to create booster packs. However, if you want to take advantage of the advanced capabilities of the Scrapbook MAX! Booster Pack file format (ie including fonts, templates, etc in a .smb file), you will have to manually create the .smb file as follows:
    1. Create your embellishment images using whatever paint program you like
    2. Gather together your embellishment images, templates, fonts, etc.
    3. Create an "install.ini" file using Notepad (see description below)
    4. Zip up all of the files
    5. Change the filename extension to .smb instead of .zip (eg. would become mypack.smb)
    Be sure to create the install.ini file to suit your needs. A complete description can be found in the gallery-packs-file-format.pdf document (attached below).
